Foods which cause yeast infection

Foods which cause yeast infection

It might come as a shock, but many foods cause yeast infections over time. They simply weaken your immune system, making it vulnerable to all sorts of infection, but yeast in particular.

When the body is out of balance from fatigue or stress, the yeast can grow abnormally. An excess amount of glucose in the body can also cause a yeast infection.

Sugar or simple carbs are yeast’s preferred food source. According to the USDA, the average American consumes 158 pounds of sugar a year. High sugar foods cause yeast infections by feeding the yeast in the body allowing it to grow and spread.

Under the right conditions, one being a plentiful food source, yeast can double its population in an hour. Sugar is also by far the number one thing that can wear down your immune system. It is worse than smoking.

Other foods cause yeast infections because of how they are digested in the body. Grains for instance have glycemic loads higher than sugar itself and are turned to sugar very quickly when digested. Wheat, oats, barley, rye, sorghum, corn and peanuts are also universally contaminated with fungi.

How can this be, you wonder? Grains are usually stored in silos for extended periods of time. They can be stored for years before they are ever sold. During this time, they grow molds in these silos.

When they go to process these grains for human consumption they would have to wash them, but often this process is overlooked. Furthermore, the molds and mycotoxins will enter the grain as they try to break them down into dirt. The worst of these grains, meaning those contaminated by mold, are sold for livestock feed and alcohol processing, mostly beer.

Other foods that can be a cause of yeast infections are peanuts, corn, and red apples, which will actually grow mold on them as they grow.
